The students in this illustration are 
symbolical of the veterans on the 
campus. Although they are indistin- 
guishable from other students, the 
shadow of their military service is 


MAIN objective of the Second World War was the right to a 
free, hberal education for all peoples. In this second uneasy year 
of peace, thousands of Americans who fought that war are being 
assisted by their government in attaining this ideal. 

The men and women who served their country in the amied forces returned to college with a different 
view of life and objectives. They have settled down to the serious pursuit of scholastic life. 

Although the veterans have not engaged in all the types of frivolity which once typified college life, they 
have freely entered into the social and extra-curricular activities on the campus. 

As Kent State University in 1946- 1947 was composed mainly of veterans, we feel that their scholastic ac- 
complishments here, as well as their military achievements abroad, deserve grateful recognition. 

We are proud to dedicate this volume of the Chestnut Burr to those who assisted in preserving the rights 
of freedom.

IXJ ¥. have at- 
tempted to record in the fol- 
lowing pages of the 1947 Chestnut Burr a history 
of the school year at Kent State University. 

This has been an important year, with many un- 
usual situations confronting both the administration 
and the students. A record fall enrollment — some- 
what more than 4,000 — swamped our facilities and 
created several unexpected problems. A serious hous- 
ine shortage resulted in large-scale commuting from 
as far away as Canton and Cleveland. 

Classrooms were more crowded than we had ever 
known them. Cafeteria and registration lines were 
longer, and slower. 

Textbooks, the essentials of education, were short. 
Downtown restaurants were mobbed at mealtimes; 
their food supplies often proved inadequate to Kent 
State's sudden spurt of growth. 

Even study problems were aggravated. Students 
resorted to auditorium seats, or classroom desks placed 
in the hallwa)' running between Kent Hall and Mer- 
rill Hall. 

Barracks-type dormitories \\ere hastily constructed 
to accommodate ex-GIs beginning, or continuing, a 
war-interrupted college education. The Administra- 
tion announced plans for a Student Center to be con- 
structed between the Heating Plant and Engleman 

Veterans were pre-dominant among Kent Staters — 
reaching a total of eighty per cent of the student 
body — and displayed an easy adjustment to college 
life. As a group they maintained better-than-average 
grades, indicating a serious approach to their prob- 

For the first time in many years, classes were held 
evenings and Saturdays. A full-time branch university 
was established in Canton to accommodate freshmen 
and sophomores from that area. 

\\'ith sufficient manpower back on campus, a full 
program of varsity athletics was resumed. Football, 
basketball, baseball, swimming, wrestling and track 
teams turned in very satisfactory records, \\ith prom- 
ise of better things in the future. 

Other campus activities reflected the increased 
enrollment. Organizations dormant during the barren 
war years were re-activated; the social calendar was 
full. ■ 

Our school is growing up. 

The whole human race found 1947 difficult going. 
The same results of the Second World \\'ar \\hich 
gave Kent State its impetus to growth brought to the 
great globe one of the most significant years of its 
recorded history. The atomic bomb continued to be 
the object of desperate deliberation, speculation and 
fear. The United Nations sought a formula for world 
peace. \\'artime controls and regulations \\ere aband- 
oned. Labor strife continued to make major headlines. 
For the first time, war instigators were punisiicd for 
crimes against man. 

W Q. the Chestnut Burr staff, have tried to record 
in picture and print the liighlights of life in 1947, on 
the campus and in the world. Our objective has been 
to give permanence to memories of your doings, your 
friends, your classmates and your professors. The 
staff was relatively inexperienced in the field, and un- 
dertook production of the book in spite of serious 
material shortages. 

\\'e hope that today, when you leaf through the 
Burr for the first time, you will appreciate and enjoy 
its contents. In future ^•ears ^^■e hope you will find 
it valuable to restore memories of events and people 
almost forgotten. A.G.

The Campus 


PREADING over more than loo acres, 
the campus of Kent State University possesses 
the natural beauty of a cultural center. The 
main buildings form a semi-circle on a ridge above the rest of the campus, 
affording a spacious view over the front campus and surrounding countrv- 

In Spring, Summer and Fall, most students have enjoyed a pleasant stroll 
across the shaded front campus or have relaxed from strenuous classroom toil 
on the soft grass, ^^'inter brings a chilling wind, but who has not stopped 
a moment to admire a new fallen snow on the campus hillside. The daily 
trek up the hill will be remembered by all who have attended the University. 
Numerous changes are in progress or are contemplated. In a few years 
the campus, so familiar to present students, will have a greatly changed and 
improved appearance.

HOUSANDS of new students descended on the University in the fall to shatter all previous enrollment 
records. The official fall registration listed 4768 students on the Kent campus and 650 at the Canton branch. 

This great influx of students almost doubled the population of Kent. Many were unable to find housing 
facilities in Kent and were forced to commute. Others secured temporary quarters at the Maple Grove housing 
project and later in the year in the University barracks. 

Classes were filled to capacity and the faculty bore a heavy burden of extra classes. Jammed hallways made 
progress between classes slow while an acute traffic situation resulted from hundreds of student drivers. During 
meal hours most of the eating places in town were crammed. In the second quarter the enrollment dechned 
slightly but not enough to offer much respite from the crowded conditions. 





UCH ado was made over the atomic bomb and its possible effects upon civilization during the year. 
The above photograph of the atomic bomb experiments at Bikini was taken by an automatic camera mounted 
in a tower on the beach. The picture shows the huge tower of water and steam created by the underwater ex- 
plosion in the second test. 

All the world shuddered at the thought of another war in which atomic energy would be the basic explo- 
sive force employed. To forestall this occurrence, the United Nations deliberated at length over methods of 
controlling the production and use of this brute energy. Whether or not these discussions have been of any 
avail will be known through the passage of time. 

\\'hile most of the world cringed at the devastating po\\er of atomic energy, scientists were absorbed with 
the problem of harnessing the energy for peaceful purposes To gainfully employ atomic power presents per- 
plexing problems but it is hoped that eventually the world will benefit from the development of atomic dis-

Fresident of the University 

' President George A. Bowman found in his third 
year at Kent State University that leadership of a 
rapidly expanding institution involved more than 
just desk work. Through his efforts and many trips 
of inspection to government surplus piles all over 
Ohio, he was able to supply the campus with dor- 
mitory space, cafeteria equipment and classroom 
space necessary to meet demands of a veteran-swollen 
population. His additions to the faculty have not 
only provided much needed instructors but have done 
much toward raising the prestige of the school. 

President Bowman, aided bv his 
secretary, Mrs. Alice Makinson 


\\\x\\ a personal interest in 
the welfare of each individual, 
Dr. Bo\\'man has attempted to 
bring a wider scope of educa- 
tional possibilities to every 
student at the University, 
keeping in mind that in several 
years college training ^^'ill not 
be merely desirable but virtu- 
ally necessary for entrance into 
crowded technical and special- 
ized fields. His background of 
school administration prepares 
him well to act the role of ad- 
visor and aide.

ISE direction of a university of 
nearly 5000 students is accomplished 
only through concerted activity by 
the entire staff leading it. Without 
cooperation the chaos of postwar re- 
vision and adjustment would never 
have been untangled. 

The Coordinator of Veterans' Af- 
fairs has been active this year in 
providing guidance for veterans who 
comprise eighty per cent of the stu- 
dent population. This office has found 
popularity by insuring prompt deliv- 
ery of subsistence checks and bringing 
to the attention of every ex-G. I. the 
benefits resulting from regional and 
national legislation.

HE versatility and sympathetic understanding of under- 
graduates' needs and problems have made Dr. John Reed 
Spicer one of the most popular administration staff members 
during his first year as Dean of the College of Liberal Arts. 
Having just recently completed work on his doctorate, the 
thirty-nine-vear-old Dean has had an intimate, personal 
knowledge of his students' problems. 

A revised and expanded system of facultv advisors and 
important curricula changes marked the first-year improve- 
ments introduced bv the administrator, enabling a student 
to receive competent, individual advice relating to Iiis studies 
from authorities in each particular field.

ACULTY members of the School of Art this year again 
sponsored the annual exhibition of work by University stu- 
dents, staff, and alumni. An invitational tea in the Fall form- 
ally opened the exhibit which included paintings in oil and 
watercolor, crayon drawings, and craft pieces by the five 
new artists who joined the faculty this year. These new 
members were Robert and Barbara Morrow, Julius Faysash, 
Max Johnson, and Miss Maxine Maxwell. Such a display of 
work was instrumental in sparking student confidence in their 
teachers' abilities. 

Returning from a year of study. Miss Nina Humphrey, 
head of the school, began her thirty-third year with the de- 
partment. Teaching every phase of art, the school curriculum 
was expanded to offer concentrated sequences in jewelry 
design, weaving, graphic arts such as lithographing and wood 
cutting, and marionette and puppet design. These were in 
addition to the regularly scheduled classes in commercial and 
studio art, as well as the history and appreciation of the

Johnny Michaels provided music, was the high point 
of this year's program of activities. 

Creative enthusiasm and critical ability are devel- 
oped in artistically talented students through this club. 

a University organization composed primarily of 
majors and minors in the School of Art. The fre- 
quent field trips to nearby museums and exhibitions 
were financed from fees earned by decorating Wills 
Gymnasium for school affairs. 

Students enjoyed the club's original decorations for 
the Homecoming dance, Top Hop, Newman Club 
formal and most other social affairs. These projects 
were led by President "\^'alter Schaffer and his ex- 
ecutive council which included Glen McFarland, 
Alice Hudson, A^irginia Block, Mavis Lemmons, and 
Richard Pope. 

Art Club members, refusing to let rain spoil their picnic, adjourned to the shelter of Kent Hall. 



OURNALISAI activities hit a new high with an increased 
enrolhiient, establishment of a publicity and promotion short 
course and expansion of the nationallv-known short course 
in ne\\'s photography marking as outstanding this year's 
growth in tlie School of Journalism. Directing its progress 
was William D. Taylor, Jr., wdio returned from overseas 
military service to lead his department to its place as eight- 
eenth amon<r journalism schools in the nation. 

edited as the school with the country's fastest-growing 
enrollment, the total number of journalism students rose to 
:;2o titis year, including 35 majors registered in the outstand- 
ing photograpliy curriculum taught by Assistant Professor 
James A. Fosdick. .More than 500 professional photographers 
and public relations workers attended short courses directed 
by Alfred A. Crowell and .Michael J. Radock of the Journal- 
ism School faculty. 

Journalism students revived their departmental organization 
which sponsored the annual high school da\' and speeches

HE official publicity and news of Kent 
State is distributed by the University News 
Bureau, directed by Michael J. Radock, as- 
sistant professor of journalism. He is aided 
by a staff of student assistants. Full-page news- 
paper and magazine layouts and network 
radio broadcasts have brought to a national 
audience the story of this year's expansion at 
the University. 

Preparation and distribution of special in- 
formation booklets for individual activities, 
such as athletics and the A Cappella choir, 
were handled by this office, which also pro- 
moted the Model Model contest. 

Daily sports releases were sent to area news- 
papers by Mickey Dover, while Alarion Cole 
handled home town and general university 
news stories. Ernest Rowland \\'as staff pho-

ORK on the '47 Burr was slowed up many times during 
the year as the business staff met difficulties in purchasing 
supplies and equipment. It was obvious to Business Manager 
Clarence Tonka that though the war abroad was over, the 
war of supply and demand on the production market was 
still being waged. Scarcities in all fields threatened to delay 
production, and purchase of essentials called for miles of leg 
work. A\'ith a nation-\\'ide shortage of newsprint contrasted 
to an increased number of pages, the yearbook was fortunate 
that, due to the foresight of its leaders, contracts had been 
made months in advance to co\'er paper suppl\-, printing and 
binding. Further gro\\th was also evidenced m the advertising

N crusading for improvements on campus as daily news- 
papers have done in metropolitan areas, the Kent Stater this 
year was responsible for countless changes which benefited 
the entire university. In its sixty columns of news each week, 
the Stater fought for better student government and educa- 

AA'ith the return from service of fomier journalism 
students came the reappearance of traditional sports and 
political columns. \'eterans dominated the editorial staff,

C^UPERVISED by Editor Robert Hoyt, the Kent 
Stater turned its emphasis to interpretation as well as 
reporting of campus events during the second half of 
the school year. 

Professional-caliber critiques of musical and artistic 
events, concentration on the serious aspects of college 
education, and interpretation of campus trends were 
evident in news and editorial columns. 

Close work with University clubs through a series 
of feature articles resulted in increased membership 
in many groups and success of worthwhile campaigns. 
Aided by Kent Stater support, the University Veter- 
ans Association, Booster Club and similar service 
groups were able to expand their activities. 

Publication of the Kent State University Canton 
edition of the newspaper continued on a bi-weeklv 
basis during the Spring, under campus edition editors. 

The Kent Stater maintained its high position among 
college newspapers throughout the nation, with Pro- 
fessor Alfred A. Crowell as advisor and Julian Suso 
business manager.

1^ EEPING policies of Kent State publications on 
the highest possible level is the responsibility of mem- 
bers of the Publications Policy Committee, student- 
faculty group which selects heads for the student 
newspaper, yearbook, and humor magazine. 

In semi-annual meetings, committeemen examined 
applications from students for editor and business 
manager of the Kent Stater and Chestnut Burr, and 
selected heads of these publications. 

The group also gave its approval for reappearance 
of the Duchess, monthly humor magazine, by select- 
ing the editor and publisher. 

Nc\\- faculty member on the committee this year 
was John B. Nicholson, Jr., librarian. Professors re- 
taining their posts were \Mlliam D. Taylor, Jr., Ches- 
ter A. Satterfield, and Leland C. Whetten. Four stu- 
dents approved by Student Council were seated on 
the Publications Policy Committee. 


^HE DUCHESS, campus humor magazine, re- 
sumed publication last fall under the guidance of 
Glenn Yotti, publisher, and Al Weekly, editor-in- 
chief. The grand old lady returned to the campus 
with a fresh spirit and a new editorial poUcy. 

Coverage of the major events and trends at the 
University was included in each issue of the maga- 
zine. Articles of current interest aroused a high de- 
gree of student readership. Following a policy of 
using many pictures each month, the Duchess kept 
a large staff of photographers busy turning out all 
types of pictures. 

The chief photographer for the Duchess was \V. 
"Doc" Koch with a staff of experienced cameramen. 
The editorial side was handled by Hope Greener, 
assistant editor; Phil Dempsey, feature editor; Bob 
W'entz, copy editor; and \Vard G. Van Orman in 
charge of humor. Earl Greaves and H. Lee Baker 
furnished the art work. Business matters were taken 
care of by John Laurenson and Bob Ryan.

activities of the School of Journalism. 

Under the presidency of Stater editor Matt Fenn, 
the fraternitv cooperated with the journalism depart- 
ment in the annual short courses in Public Relations 
and News Photography. It also engaged well-known 
journalists to address the journalism student body at 

regular meetmgs. 

In February Chi Pi sponsored the annual publica- 
tions banquet, at which new heads of the University 
publications were named. The Paul Ryan Stater 
achievement trophy and the new Aiatthew J. Fenn 
trophy were presented at the banquet, which was 
held at the Mayflower Hotel in Akron. 

Chi Pi also gained the distinction of becoming the 
first journalism fraternity to make a donation to the

ER\^ICE in the field of journalism was the goal 
of Lambda Phi, women's journalism honorary-, this 
past year. Collaborating with Chi Pi and the School 
of Journalism, the fraternity assisted with the annual 
Short Course in News Photography by helping find 
housing for visiting photographers and aiding the 
journalism department in handling the tremendous 
influx of mail. 

Lambda Phi also helped sponsor the annual high 
school day of the Northeastern Ohio Scholastic Press 
for students interested in journalism. Special awards 
were presented for the best news stories and certifi- 
cates \\'ere awarded to the outstanding high schoo 

President of Lambda Phi this year was Ethel Schir-

of sixteen Ohio public relations men 
guided the project in its first year. 


School of Music 

C^ RAINING of a professional caliber is offered 
by musicians who comprise the faculty of the School 
of Music, headed by Prof. Fred Herman Denker. 

Vocal and instrumental curricula prepare talented 
students for solo and ensemble work as well as the 
teaching of music. Private training in every major 
band and orchestra instrument is offered by regular 
faculty members, supplemented by distinguished 
artists from the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra. 

Faculty of the School of Alusic this year sponsored 
an extensive program of recitals, highlighted by a 
Spring concert featuring compositions of Prof. 
Harold Allies. The school also sponsored regular 
weekly programs of recorded classical music from 
the complete departmental library. 

Further emphasis was placed on informal recitals 
by applied music students, as part of the well-rounded 
departmental program designed to produce expert, 
thoroughly-trained artists.

/vent state University's band gained added 
recognition this year as Director Roy D. Metcalf led 
the group tlirough annual contests to maintain its ex- 
cellent rating. 

Band members began the school year by providing 
colorful,well-executed formations as a marching unit 
at gridiron contests. Paced by Drum A'lajor Jack Rus- 
sell, the blue-and-gold uniformed group was particu- 
larly impressive at the season finale with the Uni- 
versity of Akron. 

On the concert stage Prof. Aietcalf directed the 
spring concert, which featured the popular Grieg 
Piano Concerto, with Prof. Fred Herman Denker, 
head of the School of Music, as soloist. 

Musicians of the Kent State group travelled to 
Wittenberg College for the annual festival with bands 
of every major Ohio school. Here students learned 
new music and were given an opportunity to per- 
form under various directors. 

Officers of the band for the last year have been 
John Solomon, president; Marshall Friedland, vice- 
president; and Patricia West, secretary.

'ITH THE return to the faculty of Kenneth 
Byler, assistant professor of music, tlie University 
Symphony Orchestra resumed its pre-war pattern of 
an all-student ensemble, after being augmented by 
local talent for ahnost four years. 

Musicians in the Orchestra officially opened the 
Kent State concert season early in the Fall Quarter 
with a recital of classical symphony and programme 
music. David Kenippel was concertmaster of the 
group which won early recognition from critical 

In addition to its regularly scheduled concert ap-

A Cappella Choir 

Caro M. Carapetyan 

*-a)URS throughout Northeastern Ohio and 
radio broadcasts over leading area network 
stations brought new acclaim to the Kent 
State A Cappella Choir and its director, Caro 
M. Carapetyan, associate professor of music. 

Radio Station WTAiVI, Cleveland, aired the 
choir in a half-hour program of Christmas 
music, and appearances from the University 
auditorium over Station WHKK, Akron, and 
from other area stations followed. 

Director Carapetyan brought added recog- 
nition for the choir as he led the 8o-voice 
group in recitals at leading churches in Cleve- 
land, Akron, Youngstown, Canton, and iMass- 

The choir director also edited several an- 
cient compositions, including Gallus' "Alle- 
luia," which were given their United States 
■premiers on this campus. 


v_/DCUSING attention on ballads and songs more than four 
hundred years old, the A'ladrigal singers this year brought 
to the campus a rarely-heard type of music sung in tradi- 
tional sixteenth century style. Organized and led by Caro Al. 
Carapetyan of the School of Music faculty, the Madrigal 
singers were often included on regular programs with the A 
Cappella Choir. The si.xteen trained singers, composing the 
first group of its kind at Kent, were selected by the director 
after individual invitation and audition. 




^AKING far-reaching plans for improvement of the 
A Cappella Choir, Director Caro M. Carapetyan this year 
established the Second Choir, comprised mainly of freshman 
and sophomore singers who were being trained for eventual 
membership in the senior choral group. 

In training this Second Choir, Professor Carapetyan em- 
phasized development of a professional attitude achieved 
through persistent training, sincerity and enthusiasm for vocal 
music. All singers were held responsible for perfect memori- 
Kation of words and music. 


Jx OUR outstanding young American vocalists this year 
combined their talents with the 200 Kent State University 
singers and orchestra members to revive the annual presenta- 
tion of Handel's famous Christmas oratorio, "The Messiah." 

New York soloists Eleanor Brownell, Gertrude Berggren, 
Alfred Hopkins and John Grant sang leading roles in the 
December performance, witnessed by a capacity audience. 
Director of the oratorio in its first performance at Kent State 
since 1 944 was Fred Herman Denker, head of the School of 

In addition to students in the "Messiah" chorus and orches- 
tra, many faculty members and local musicians aided in the 
performance. Singers and audience alike were thrilled by the 
closing "Alleluia" chorus which climaxed the oratorio.

As the winter clouds rolled 
over Prentice Gate and cov- 
ered the campus with a fleecy 
white blanket, students found 
new entertainment. Snowball- 
ing, tobogganing and skiing 
were definitely more fun than 
classroom lectures. 

Then came the big drift. 
Classes were closed for one day 
and everyone on the campus 
had a royal time.

School of Speech 

(Broadcasting, acting, and speech instruction 
and correction are stressed by the School of Speech 
in a program aimed to improve oral habits of students 
in and out of the professional speech field. 

Headed for the seventeenth year bv E. Turner 
Stump, founder of the school, the speech department 
aids other divisions of the University in preparing 
public programs. Speech students are also called upon 
to help in campaigns for local welfare and civic im- 

High school students are encouraged to take an 
active part in dramatics through the annual summer 
workshops sponsored by scholarships to the Speech 
School. The School of Speech is also the home of the

Pi Kappa Delta 


NCLUDED in the many activities of the Kent 
chapter of Pi Kappa Delta, national honorary speech 
fraternity, is participation at the biennial tournament 
in which Kent State students debate with orators 
from the nation's leading colleges and universities. 

This year's contest took place in April at Bowling 
Green State University. 

Pi Kappa Delta pledges are chosen by balloting of 
members of the honorary. Eligibility is based on 
points gained through inter-collegiate speech activities, 
with emphasis on debate work. 

Forensics coach James N. Holm has been advisor 
to the group since 1939. Under his guidance, eight Pi 
Kappa Delta members met with speakers from other 
schools in oratory contests. The members were also 
official liosts to students from twenty-three schools 
represented at the Buckeye Debate Tournament.

CJ HROUGH the efforts of the University's For- 
ensics Club, the group responsible for debates, oratory, 
and other types of extensional speaking off campus, 
Kent was host to the annual Buckeye Debate Tourna- 
ment held here in Febrary. Facing debate teams from 
twenty-three surrounding colleges, the University 
tied for third place. 

Professor James N. Holm, the original organizer 
and present advisor, succeeded in rapidly extending 
the group's activities which were curtailed during the 
war. In keeping with policies of expansion, an invita- 
tion was sent to the University of Hawaii proposing

J" OR THE past forty years, through the "Little 
Theater" movement, dramatic interest and activity 
has spread among the people of the nation, until it 
has become an important aspect of American life. 
The Kent State University Theater has felt that it has 
had some part in the development of the national 
expression, since for seventeen years it has been 
operating under the School of Speech and has pre- 
sented a regular program of plays. 

The University Theater has fulfilled the various 
functions of the stage by maintaining a balance be- 

tween plays of cultural importance and those of high 
entertainment value. As a result of these efforts, Kent 
State students have enjoyed a well rounded program 
of fine entertainment during the past year. 

The season of 1946-47 found two plays in the 
cultural group — "Macbeth" and "Othello"; and in the 
entertainment category were "East Lynne", Agatha 
Gristle's "Ten Little Indians," and the story of old 
back bay Boston society, "The Late George Apley". 
Acting as theater manager for this year's successful 
productions was Felice Faust, with Clifford Hancock 
ser\'ing as business manager.

man's noose of the murderous judge, Jim Bullock.

"One went and choked himself, 
And then there were none . . ." 

sjrN KEEPING M'ith pre-war tradition, the 
University Theater this year resumed its 
schedule of five full-length plays, with 
Shakespeare's "Alacbeth" opening the season. 

Featured in the lead role \\as UT veteran 
Don Shanower, with freshman Helen

In addition to the three campus per- 
formances, the "Alacbeth" cast played to more 
than 3000 students in eight northeastern Ohio 
high schools. This \\'as the nation's first road 
show of classic drama by a college touring 

As the result of this highly-successful ex- 
periment, the National Thespian Society will 
sponsor similar tours next year by six leading 
collecres throughout the United States. KSU 
will represent the Ohio district.

season, the melodramatic "East Lynne", was

direction of G. Harry Wright. The humorous 
rendition of bet\\"een act vaudeville skits and 
a small but effective pit orchestra helped to 
make the play the entertaining production 
it was. 

Next came the Agatha Christie spine-chil- 
ling who-dun-it, "Ten Little Indians", directed 
by a newcomer to the School of Speech, 
Robert I. Pearce. 

The second Shakespearian classic of the 
season was "Othello". The year was closed 
with the Kaufman-Marquand hit "The Late 
George Aplev". Botii of these were directed 
by Mr. "Wright.

Speech Clinic 

tX/ IDESPREAD recognition has been attained by the 
Speech and Elearing Chnic estabhshed by Professor John R. 
Montgomery in 1945 as a branch of the School of Speech. 
This department attempts to develop competent field workers 
and classroom teachers who can handle the variety of problems 
found in the fields of Speech Pathology and Hearing Therapy. 
The operation of the chnic gives students excellent oppor- 
tunities to learn through actual clinical application. 

Acting as a service to the University, the clinic assists 
students with hearing and speech difficulties to overcome 
their handicaps. Area citizens not connected with Kent 
State also come to the clinic for assistance, providing ad- 
ditional experience for suident therapists.

Department of English 

4_^ HROUGH the addition of nine new teachers, 
the Department of Enghsh met tlie problem of supply- 
ing instructors for an increase of more than 300 per 
cent in the number of English classes offered at the 
University last Fall. 

Professor Chester E. Satterfield, head of the depart- 
ment, found that to accommodate the influx of both 
veteran and non-G.I. students, it was necessary to 
open fiftv-eight classes of freshman English as com- 
pared with sixteen at the same time last year. This 
number rose to sixtv-three in the Winter Quarter, 
and more were scheduled for the Spring Quarter. 

Thus the new total of twenty-one faculty members 
brought Shakespeare, Shaw, romanticism, realism, and 
the comma to Kent in Alonday through Saturday

The club is open to any of the more than loo majors 

and over 30 minors now enrolled in the Department 
of Industrial Arts. 

The department includes a metal processing shop, 
complete with an up-to-date tool room, and a modem 
woodworking department. Both are located in the 
heating plant. The drawing classes boast the largest 
enrollment in the history of the University, over 300 
students, most of whom are taking pre -engineering 
courses. Heading the Department of Industrial Arts 
is Professor Dewey F. Barich, coordinator of veteran's

ITH new discoveries in the science of nutrition 
each year, the field of home economics becomes in- 
creasingly important in the maintenance of good 
health and energy. The Home Fxonomics Depart- 
ment endeavors to train future dieticians and home- 
makers in better \\-ays of feeding and clothing 

Psi Lambda Omicron, the home economics honor- 

ary, was organized at Kent State University on De- 
cember 4, 1940. An Alunmi News Letter is sent out 
each Spring to help keep the active and alumni mem- 
bers in close contact with each other and with the 
University. In an effort to encourage high scholastic 
standards and to cultivate an interest in the field, the 
group gives an award each year to the outstanding 
home economics freshman. Another project of the 
organization is to buy a government bond each year 
to start a fund for a scholarship in home economics.

EGIONAL groups of ^^'hich Kent State Univer- 
sity Home Economics Club is a member meet once or 
twice a year to compare experiences and gain inspira- 
tion from each other's ideas and activities, discussing 
the field from many aspects. The club, which is com- 
posed of home economics majors and minors, provides 
many opportunities for gaining experience and apply- 
ing training that cannot be secured in a formal class- 
room sitting. 

Adding to the pleasure of the members are numerous 
social activities as well as many helpful educational 
projects, through \\hich the students are better enabled 
to understand the field in which they are interested. 

The organization, which is a local branch of the 
American Home Economics Association and is also 
affiliated with the Ohio Home Economics Associa- 
tion, tries to enlighten the members as to the scope 
and value of the studies in which they are engaged. 
These ainis are succeeding as indicated by the ever 
increasing number of home economics students who 
are becoming members of the society.

HE H.P.E. Club is open to men and women 
majors and minors in the fields of health and physical 
education. The purposes of the club are multiple. At 
the professional meetings, lectures are given by men 
who are prominent in their fields. These meetings 
are designed to acquaint the members with the various 

opportunities possible in the different branches of 
physical education. Social meetings enable the mem- 
bers to become better acquainted. 

The club supports, and helps to promote, sports 
events in the University as well as among its own 
members. Leading the group in the past year were 
George Streby, president; Frank Spechalske, vice- 
president and social chairman; and Helen Baugher, 
secretary and treasurer. Drawn from the member- 
ship of this group were many of the managers and 
participants on athletic teams, and several of the time- 
keepers and referees for intramural sports competition.

N AN attempt to comply with the needs of the veteran 
in the College of Business Administration, Dean Arden L. 
Allvn found it necessary to make major adjustments in the 
curricula. The first task was the organization of a special 
introductory course in business to meet the mature outlook 
of the veteran. Then, for the student enrolled in retailing, 
courses were expanded to include retailing in small businesses 
and privately owned establishments. Also added was a four 
year curriculum in Industrial Psychology Procedures, a modi- 
fication of personnel and management studies to include the 
psychological approach to business direction and ownership.

HE women's professional business honorary on 
campus, Zeta Iota, was organized to encourage and 
recognize outstanding scholarship in the field of 
business administration. The organization provides 
a medium through which business and business educa- 
tion may be discussed. At tlie colorful, impressive 

candle-light initiation service, followed by a dinner 
and theater party, new members were introduced and 
welcomed to active participation in the group's activ- 
ities. Ruth Howard was president of the group during 
the past year. 

Due to tlie recent increase in enrollment of the 
College of Business Administration, Zeta Iota is at- 
tempting to promote the reorganization of the Com- 
merce Club which will be open to all suidents in the 
field of business administration. The ultimate goal 
toward A\-liich the members of the group are striving 
is that of becoming a national business honorary.

as the outstanding professional group on the campus. 
Composed of selected men from the College of Busi- 
ness Administration, the group brought a number of 
noted speakers to the campus for professional pro- 

As a service to the students in the college, the 
chapter sponsored three open meetings with pro- 
fessional speakers. Projects carried out during the 
year included assisting the college with pre-registra- 
tion, securing an up-to-date library of catalogs from 
all the colleges of business in the countr\% and making 
a statistical survey of all the graduates of the college. 
At the beginning of 1 947 the chapter ranked seventh 
in the efficienc\' contest anK)ng the sixty-three chap- 
ters in the country. A schohirship key was presented 
to the outstanding graduate in the college. 

Founders Day was celebrated on November 2 with 
a banquet at the Robin Hood. Twenty-two new 
members were installed at that time. A Christmas 

party was held for all members and their guests. On 
A'lay 16 the chapter celebrated its fiftli birthda\' with 
a dance. 

Leading the group for the past year were Alvin

first time the College f)f Fxlucation, though faced with the 
enrollment increase which pervaded the campus, became the 
smallest of the three academic colleges. Under the progres- 
sive leadership of Dean Robert I. W^hite, Jr., who came to 
Kent State this year from the University of Chicago, several 
new curricula were introduced. Majors were established in 
the fields of Library Science, with particular attention to art 
supervision for the elementary level, and Speech and Hearing 
Therapy. A minor in Recreation was also created to train 
students for professional-calibre camp counselling work.

^Integration of college subjects with practi- 
cal experience in the teaching field was the core of 
this year's improved program of the College of Edu- 
cation and the Kent State University Training School. 

Because of the record-breaking number of men in 
the education field, emphasis centered on preparation 
for secondary school teaching. Existing fields of study 
for teachers were made more comprehensive and 
several new major sequences added. The previous 
system of student-teaching in Training School class- 
rooms from first through twelfth grade was contin- 
ued, under supervision of staff critic teachers. 

Special attention was paid to graduates in the teach- 
ing field, through clinics sponsored bv the College of 
Education. This ^\'as an effort to meet their problems 
and eliminate recurrence of these same difficulties for 
future teachers now at KSU.

Club. Speakers from the facult)% student body, and outside organ- 
izations spoke on the school systems of their native lands, thus 
broadening the understanding of prospective teachers in the ele- 
mentary grades. 

Jacqueline Shafer served as president of the club for the 1946-47 
academic year. With her on the executive board were Josephine 
Cook, vice-president; Ruth Howe, secretary; and Roberta Grtibe, 

The fifty members met socially for both a graduation dinner 
and a spring children's party. Miss Susanne Koehler, associate pro- 
fessor of education, was instrumental in the planning of these 
gatherings while acting as advisor to the E-E group. 


'HE START of the Winter Quarter 
found a slight but significant relief to the 
crowded living conditions in the opening 
of the new "Terrace Lodge," a colony 
of five housing units east of Mouiton 
Hall. The buildings, originally prefabri- 
cated hospital units destined for the 
tropics, were procured through the 
iMarion, Ohio, surplus properties depot. 
They were obtained by paying the trans- 
portation and erection costs. 

As the men moved into the new 
"domis" in the muddy 'i\6-^j Winter, 
they found the unterraced surroundings 
covered \\'ith slush and puddles, but 
looked forward to the promised Spring 

Accommodating 220 students, the

pilot certificates, the course included twenty-six hours 
of cross-country flight in Stinson 150's and two lec- 
ture hours each week. 

A further expanded program in aeronautics prompt- 
ed the Industrial Arts Department to schedule four 
elementary flight courses with a total of eighty-five 
students enrolled. Flight instruction courses attracted 
eighty students. 

The aeronautical program received an added boost 
when considerable surplus aircraft equipment, which 
included aircraft parts and assembly material, switches 
and training films, were secured.

Y DIRECTING Kent Stare University Canton in its first 
year of full time operation, C. M. Schindler, former speech 
director at Canton McKinley Higli School, accomplished a 
task requiring much tact and patience. 1 lis friendliness, sense 
of responsibility and sincere interest in KSUC made him well- 
liked h\ Canton Center students. 

A branch of Kent State University established for the pur- 
pose of offering freshman and sophomore courses to Canton 
area students w ho exentually expect to attend the L ni\ersitv, 
KSUC this year had an enrollment of 650 students. The reo;- 
ular faculty \\'as augmented b\' professors from the Kent 
campus w ho taught evening classes. 


OPHOlVIORES at KSUC elected two men to lead 
them in their 1946-47 activities. President Jack Posey, 
one of the many students studying at Canton under 
the GI Bill, attended Mount Union College and the 
University of Missouri before entering the Air Corps, 
and is a pre-law student. 

Owen Hemphill was chosen secretary-treasurer, 
and capably handled the finances of the class, which, 
with seventy students, ^\■as far outnumbered by the 
huge freshman class. 

At a special assembly held early in the school year, 
the Sophomore Class voted to adopt the constitution 
which had been established by the Freshman Class. 
As a result, a steering committee was set up to guide 
the activities of the class by drawing up a program 
for the year. Under this plan all parties and social 
events at KSUC were sponsored by and open to mem- 
bers of both classes.

OULDING the record-breaking Freshman 
Class into an organized unit was the task of three navy 
veterans and one coed. Helping President William 
Kelly guide the class were Glenn Campbell, vice- 
president; Jeanne Quick, secretary; and Cliff Eddie- 
man, treasurer. 

The class was organized during the Fall Quarter, 
but really became established on a firm foundation 
with the adoption of a constitution on January lo. 
On that day students poured into AIcKinley High 
School auditorium and quickly ratified the document

ITH a paper coming out every other Friday, 
KSUC students were kept well-infomied on Canton 
Center news, as well as the more important events at 
the parent school in Kent. Organized under the di- 
rection of Nomia Van Benthuysen, the first issue of 
the KSUC Stater appeared November 22. 

Miss Van Benthuysen served as editor-in-chief. 
Other members of the staff were Sam A'lujais, sports 
editor, with Oscar Borom as his assistant and Evelyn 
Cobb as girls' sports editor. Betty Georges and Gene- 
vieve Morgese \\'ere feature editors and Allen Stein- 
hardt was business manager. 

Adding life to the paper were columnists Tom 
Jakmides and \ivian Booher. Reporters included 
Foster Humphrey, Martha Heising, Alary Louise Bid- 
w ell, Owen Hemphill, Rheta Woods, William Ittner, 
^^'illiam Sullivan, Richard Gonser, and David Silver. 

The KSUC Stater sponsored the selection of the 
KSUC Sweetheart Queen, who was presented, along 
with her court, at the Mardi Gras dance February 18 
at the Hotel Belden.

WENTY-FOUR pages of this year's Chestnut 
Burr were, for the first time in its history, devoted 
to an outside branch of Kent State University. These 
pages, deahng with KSUC, were handled by Norma 
Van Benthuysen, who also edited the KSUC Stater. 

Assisting Aliss Van Benthuysen were Aiarcine Jul- 
ian and Genevieve iMorgese. Emil Oprean was the 
Canton photographer, and cooperated with a staff 
photographer from Kent to effectively cover events 
at Kent State University Canton. 

The Canton section of the Burr also had its own 
business staff. By allocating a part of their activity fees 
to it. Canton Center students received the 1947 Burr 
on the same basis as students on the Kent campus. 

Certain that the Canton branch is a permanent and 
important addition to Kent State University, with its 
650 students and its curriculum for freshmen and 
sophomores, editor-in-chief Geitgey felt it was de- 
serving of a place in the University yearbook.

Y GIVING performances at student assemblies 
and school parties, the Kent State University Canton 
Choral Club established an excellent reputation as a 
well-balanced choral group. 

Composed of thirty-eight music loving students, 
the Choral Club had weekly meetings and practice 
periods. Xancy Elson was elected president, Delores 
Nader vice-president, Jeanne Quick secretary and 
CaroUn Koehler treasurer. 

The KSUC chorus combined with the chorus of 
Canton AIcKinley High School to present Handel's 
".Messiah" during the Christmas season. The two 
groups \\'orkcd together under the leadership of Les- 
lie D. Hanson, \\-ho is director of both the Choral 
Club and the AIcKinley High School chorus. 

Particularly outstanding among the members of the 
KSUC choral group w^as Delores Nader, \\-ho in ad- 
dition to participating in the performances of the 
group, sang at meetings of Canton business organiza- 
tions and over radio station WCAiW.

POXSORING plays and radio programs 
during the year, the Kent State University 
Canton Spcecii Club was headed by Glenn 
Campbell, president, Joan Truxton. secretary, 
and Evelyn Cobb, treasurer. 

A Christmas program highlighted b)- a play, 
"Why the Chimes Rang in Norway," was 
broac'cast over radio station \\'CAR\' in 
Canton December : i . General program chair- 
man was Claude Colvin, while joe Xiamtu 
had charge of the Christmas program. 

The club also sponsored round table dis- 
cussK.ns concerning the curricula and activi- 
ties of KSUC, and brought to the Canton 
(Center the Kent State University Theater 
production "Ten Little Indians." 

A4iss Elva Bramhall directed the KSUC play 
".Abie's Irish Rose," which was presented

School auditorium. Evelyn Cobb, Fran Jak- 
mides, Emil Ciontea and Cjlenn Campbell 
had leading roles. 

Seated: Miss Anita Albu, Coach. 

Standing: Evelyn Cobb, Debate Team Captain. 


N ESTABLISHING a Pre-Engineering Club at 
Kent State University Canton, students were influ- 
enced by a desire to provide a medium through which 
pre-engineering students might exchange and acquire 
information concerning their chosen profession. 

President of the club was Richard Button. He was 
assisted bv AMlmer Binklev, vice-president, and 
James Doyle, secretary-treasurer. Richard H. Em- 

mons, science and mathematics instructor at Canton 
Center, served as advisor. 

Most of the pre-engineers were air corps veterans 
who hoped to turn some of the training they received 
in service to good use. The club sponsored movies 
and lectures, including one by Charles Powell of the 
Ohio Public Service Company, who discussed the 
duties and qualifications of electrical engineers in in-

HE FOURTH extra-curricular club to be estab- 
lished at Kent State University Canton was Kappa 
Mu fraternity, which was founded by twenty-five 
pre-medical students. 

Purpose of the fraternity is to bring in speakers to 
provide knowledge of advances in the field of medi- 
cine, explain to members what society expects of its 
medical men, and disseminate other information of 
value to pre-medical students. 

In addition to these aims, however, there existed a 
desire to promote good fellowship among those Kent 

State Canton students who expect some day to enter 
the medical profession. 

First president of the group was Lloyd McCorry. 
Richard Green was elected vice-president, Austin 
Brochaw secretary, and Jim Shaheen treasurer. 


<- MONG THE clubs established at Kent State 
University Canton this year was the Young Women's 
Educational Society, which was organized by Canton 
Center women students who expect to enter the 
teaching profession. 

Striving for improvement in the field of education 
through better teaching methods, the society was led 
by Airs. Emma Carroll, instructor in education at 
Canton Center. 

The Y\VES lield a membership drive which was 

very successful under the motto of "Go WES, young 
women, go WTS." Officers of the society were Shir- 
ley Morrow, president; Vivian Hayes, vice-president; 
Carolyn Koehler, secretary; and Evelyn Coates, treas- 
urer. At various times during the year members of 
the YWES acted as substitutes in Canton schools. 

First row: B. Johnston, C. Koehler, 
S. Morrow, V. Hayes. 

Second row: G. Otto, L. Mujais, S.

UPERA^ISED by Robert Power, instructor of 
French at Kent State University Canton, a French 
Club was established to join the growing list of ex- 
tracurricular organizations arising at KSUC to enable 
students to broaden their knowledge outside school 

Organized at mid-year, the neophyte club held 
many informal meetings featuring French records, 
songs, lectures, and even French language movies. 
Outstanding among a series of readings done in 
French was the "Count of Monte Cristo" by Alex- 
andre Dumas. In this way students were able to add 
to the basic French which they were taught in class.

C/ HE Kent State University Canton swing band 
was organized last fall under the direction of R. Don- 
ald Stump. Air. Stump, director of the McKinley 
High School band, provided very capable leadership. 

Composed of KSUC's outstanding musicians, the 
swing band provided music for many of the school's 
social functions throughout the year. Practice sessions 
and meetings to discuss plans of the band were held 
every Monday. 

Emil Ciontea, one of the student musicians, was 
leader of the McKinley concert band in 1946. He also 
gained recognition for his work in the play "Abie's 
Irish Rose."

■ OST ACTI\"E of the many clubs organized at 
KSUC this year ^\■as the Spanish Club, which was 
supervised by Jacques Kaplan, instructor of Spanish 
and German. 

Boasting a membership of twenty-eight, the club 
held weekly meetings to provide the students with a 
more complete kno\\dedge of Spanish, \\ith the em- 
phasis being placed on conversational facility. 

Outstanding among the activities of the club were 
lectures, films and forums. Among the speakers were 
John Popa and Kenneth Yeager. Jose Fernandez 
served as president; Guzman Cespedes, vice-president; 
and Rosa Hunter, secretary-treasurer.

by a score of 39-36. 




EN'S ATHLETIC activities at KSUC were 
highlighted this year by the basketball team, which 
dominated play in the Canton Class A league, aver- 
aging 46 points per game. 

The team was coached bv Arthur "Red" Ritters- 
baugh, who also coaches Canton McKinley High 
School's Bulldogs. In intra-collegiate games the 
KSUC hoopsters dropped two contests to the Kent 
State University Junior Varsity by identical scores 
of 39-36. 

Outstanding were the performances of former Mc- 
Kinley cagers Bob Lilly, Bill Cook, and Steve Samart- 
gedes. Other varsity basketballers were Paul Nist, 
Pete Schleininger, Dick Trachsel, John Morgan, Bob 
Logan and Bob Sonnhalter. 

Coach Rittersbaugh also directed a program of class 
and fraternity league basketball, while Freshman Class 
Treasurer Clifford Eddleman taught a class in boxing. 
A non-credit course in swimming was offered under 
the direction of McKinley High School pool instruc- 



OLLEYBALL, basketball, swiniiiiing and work 
on parallel bars comprised women's athletic activities 
at KSUC this year. 

Classes wtve. held on .Monday and Wednesday 
nights from 7 to 8. .Miss Hester Johnson directed 
oymnasium acti\ities, while iMiss iMargueritte Eckis 
directed swimminsj classes. 

Complete coverage of women's athletics for the 
KSUC Stater was accomplished by Evelyn Cobb. 
Outstanding event of the year was a basketball game 
between the men and women's gym classes. Also of 
interest was the presentation of the order of the purple 
garter to Barbara Johnson, "injured in the line of 
duty" during a basketball game.

In This 

JootbaU J\eturn^ 

OOTBALL returned to the Kent campus in the Fall of 1946 after a wartime intermission of three years. 
Fans began to talk of bigtime encounters for the team and by the end of the season it looked as if this dream might 
be budding into reality. At least the groundwork had been laid for better competition in the following season. 

A heavy enrollment of men helped to bring all varsity sports out of the doldrums. Alore candidates for the 
basketball team turned out than ever before in the history of the school. Swimming, wrestling, baseball and 
track teams met a full schedule of opponents. 

A crack coaching staff enabled the University teams to garner more wins than losses. The dire need for 
a stadium became increasingly apparent and several groups were busy working on plans to provide Kent with 
a first-class stadium. Late in the year, a Booster Club was organized to consolidate and coordinate the activities 
of the fans. 



Cardi Jbeat JSoHon 


Y FAR the greatest sporting spectacle in the world, the 1946 \\'()rld Series provided sport fans ^\•ith plenty 
of excitement and suspense. The St. Louis Cardinals finally took the series by scoring a lucky run in the eighth 
inning of the seventh game. 

The above picture shows Enos Slaughter, Redbird outfielder, sliding across home plate with the winning 
run in the last game. Marty Marion, the next Cardinal batter, watches while holding a bat. On his knees 
waiting for the delayed throw from Johnny Pesky at second is catcher Roy Partee. Umpire Al Barlick signals 
the runner safe. 

This play proved to be a startling climax to a hard fought series. It will no doubt be one of the most dis- 
cussed plays in all baseball history. 

Other major national sports evidenced the return of top-notch pla\ers. Two football leagues participated 
in a series of hard fought encounters. 



(y ONCERNED about the future of post- 
war athletics at Kent, the University officials 
last year secured the services of a dynamic 
young man to fill the vacant post of athletic 
director. Trevor Rees was named to guide the 
current athletic fortunes of the Flashes. 

In 1935 Rees was an All- American end at 
Ohio State. He coached successful football 
teams at Shaw high school in Cleveland and 
at Ohio State where he had been an assistant 
to Paul Bro\\-n. Rees served in the Navy \\'ith 
the rank of Lieutenant Commander. 

He brought to Kent the ability and drive 
to produce great athletic teams. In his first 
full year as athletic director, he effectively 
demonstrated these capabilities. 

Trevor Rees 
Athletic Director 

The Coach 

(^WEEPING the cobwebs from the comers of the Uni- 
versity's dormant wartime varsity sports program, Rees 
staned down the difficult road of building winning teams. 
He secured players and equipment and arranged a schedule 
with comparable teams. 

To aid him in his quest of the Ohio gridiron pinnacle, 
Rees surrounded himself with a young and talented group 
of assistants. These aids possessed the valuable quality of 
being able to personally demonstrate correct football forms 
and maneuvers. 

The accomplishment of the 1946 football team was a 
credit to the coaches. With six wins against two losses, they 
compiled the second greatest grid record in the University's

And His Staff 


'EVER in the history of the University had a 
better balanced coaching staff been assembled to di- 
rect the sports program. 

Joe Begala, Kent's renowned wrestling mentor, 
returned from military service in time to assume the 
important position of trainer. He cared for the 
bruised and injured gridders with a minimum of praise 
and a maximum of skill. 

AV'es Stevens, former Purdue tackle, had played 
under Rees in 1937 at Shaw high school. When he 
was forced by an injury to leave Purdue for a year, 
he returned to Shaw to help Rees with the coaching 
chores. The association proved so successful that 

when Rees came to Kent he secured Stevens as coach 
of the guards and tackles. 

Harry x\dams first came to Kent in 1941 following 
an illustrious high school and college career at Cuya- 
hoga Falls and Muskingum. At that time he was an 
assistant football and basketball coach. After three 
years in the Navv he returned to take over the tute- 
lage of the ends. 

Karl Chesnutt \\'as a member of the HPE depart- 
ment when his appointment as grid assistant was 
announced last June. The diminutive coach grad- 
uated from Ohio University in 1935 and was head 
coach at Wickliffe high school before joining the 
Kent faculty in 1943. 


All Ohio 

CyNE name destined to go down in Kent's football 
history is that of Frank Mesek. The Golden Flashes' 
rugged right guard was named to a first string guard 
berth on the Associated Press 1946 All Ohio Confer- 
ence team. 

Many who had watched Alesek's great offensive 
and defensive performance feared that he would be 
neglected at the end of the season \\'hen the time 
came to pass out the plaudits. Youthful players seldom 
receive the honors and Frank was a freshman. 

But Alesek's staying power, his spectacular feats 
of grid prowess, such as cleaving a path for the ball 
carrier by eliminating two would-be tacklers with 
one block, had won the praise of press and public

/)HE inaugural game was a rout with Kent 
sTveeping over Hiram 40-0, but football hungry Flash 
fans loved every minute of it. 

When chunky Paul Loos, Flash right half bulled his 
way across the Hiram goal line for the University's 
first touchdown less than two minutes after the open- 
ing kickoff, 4,500 fans at Chagrin Falls reahzed that 
Kent's highly touted "new era" of athletics had 

Trevor Rees had fashioned a football team whose 
only resemblance to Flash teams of yore was that it 
still wore the Blue and Gold. 

This team blocked and tackled viciously. It pre- 
sented half a dozen backs of the "scat" variety, who 
were scoring threats every time they carried the ball. 
The entire club was well coached in fundamentals 
and in near perfect physical condition. The final 
score was merciful only because Rees swept the 
bench during the game. 


'FTER their easy opening victory, the Flashes 
met stiff opposition from the Blue Streaks who were 
rebounding from a 48 to o whitewash at the hands 
of Baldwin-Wallace the week before. 

It was a battle of unorthodox football, with Rees' 
"cockeyed T" opposed to Carroll's "six linemen-to- 
right-of-center" offense. 

The hero of this contest was Johnny Moore, who 
was on his way to establishing an all-time passing 
record for Kent backs. 

With the game apparently a 7 to 7 tie near the 
end of the fourth quarter, Aloore started passing with 
Kent on its own 2 3 -yard line. He hit Pat DelVecchio, 
then Howard Wolfgram, to move the ball to the 
Carroll 23. Then Moore electrified the spectators by 
fading back and pitching a perfect touchdown pass 
to Leo Kot to cinch the game. In the closing seconds 
Bernie McGroarty added insult to the Carroll injury 
by intercepting a Blue Streak pass and dashing 16 
yards for the third score.

£/(/ITH two victories behind them, the Kent 
power-house continued to roll in their first home 
appearance. Handhng a slippery pigskin during a 
steady downpour, the Kent scat-backs piled up 22 
first downs to Bluffton's one. 

Honors in this game went to the rugged Blue and 
Gold line. Bluffton's total yardage from scrimmage 
was a minus 22 yards. 

The statistics showed how hopelessly the plucky 
Bluffton team was outclassed. Total net yardage: 
Kent, 634; Bluffton, 37. 

The Flashes found that Kalamazoo had something 
other than the "gal" made famous by the popular 

The Hornets presented one of the toughest lines 
the Flashes faced all year. A A-Ioore-to-DelVecchio 
pass accounted for one touchdown and Bob Beachy 
scored the other on a plunge. Both attempts for the 
extra point were stopped. 

(^ WEET dreams for an undefeated season became 
tormenting nightmares as Kent's sister-university 
took advantage of two breaks to score two touch- 

The Flashes gained a total of 456 yards in offense 
as compared to 124 for the Falcons. The Kent line 
consistently outcharged and outplayed the Bee-Gees. 
Johnny Aloore completed 19 of 30 passes for 250 
yards and a new Kent record. 

But every time the Bee-Gee 20-yard line was 
crossed the Flashes' drive faltered. Fumbleitis and a 
series of intercepted passes stopped seven Kent scoring 

The Falcons, unable to gain either through the air 
or on the ground, scored once when Dick Lowry 
dashed 70 yards with an intercepted pass and again 
after a Kent fumble presented them with the ball 
on the five-yard line. 

A Homecoming Day throng of nearly 10,000 fans 
saw a Kent team that was great . . . one that had

ALD^VIN-WALLACE proved to be another 
heartbreaker with Kent winding up on the short end 
of the score but with a big edge in the statistics. 
Heavily-favored BW was held scoreless in the first 
half. Then both teams broke out in a scoring rash in 
a hectic second half, the Bereans scoring just once 
more than the Flashes. 

BW's third touchdown was a gift by drowsy of- 
ficials. Postgame pictures unquestionably showed 
BW clipping on Bob Hecker's 44-vard touchdown 

The Yellow Jackets scored first early in the third 
quarter and converted to make it 7 to o. The Flashes 
took the kickoff and marched 72 yards, helped by a 
brilliant 45-vard dash by ^Vib Little, to score. Virgil 
Roman's place-kick was blocked, and the Flashes 
trailed 7 to 6. 

After B^^"s second score made it 14 to 6, the 
Flashes went 61 yards to score. Aloore's passes sparked 
the drive, and Neal Nelson contributed the touch- 
down. Bob Hecker's scoring dash made Homecoming 
Day a success for Baldwin- Wallace. 


AKING a favored Bishop team completely bow 
down on its home field at Delaware, Kent scored a 
second-period touchdown, then coasted. Kent piled 
up 413 yards in net offense while Ohio \\'eslevan 
registered only 188. 

Eddie Capri was the individual hero. The diminu- 
tive right half scored on a brilliant, 40-yard dash. 
Frank Mesek, who did most of the place kicking 
during the season, made it 7 to o. Also featured was 
the play of "Silent Dan" Kratzer. Until this game a

starting lineup because of injuries. He played 60

minutes old and scored on a Frank Wahl-to 
Finn pass, but the conversion missed fire. 

Wib Little scored the second touchdown for 
the Flashes, after setting up the stage with sev- 
eral brilliant dashes in the second period. The 
last half was scoreless, with the Flashes playing 
defensive football and protecting their precious 
seven point lead. 

Again the Kent line proved itself to be one of 
the best in Ohio. Akron gained only 51 yards 
by rushing. 

This was the second consecutive win for the 
Flashes over Akron University after 14 years of 
victoryless competition with the Hilltoppers 
before the war.

NDERCLASS.MEN st;irred to win sk of 

eight games, in which the Flashes scored 143 points 
against 47 for their opponents. They piled up 3,852 
yards in net offense against the opposition's 1,661 

Johnny Moore established an all-time Kent passing 
record with 45 completions in 74 attempts for a 
total of 644 yards. This record made iMoore the 
nation's fourth-best small-college passer, according 
to NCAA statistics. 

Frank Mesek, Kent's rugged right guard, deserved- 
ly was made first-string guard on the All Ohio Con- 
ference Associated Press team. Several times during 
the season Mesek eliminated two would-be tacklers 
with a single, well-placed block. 

.Mesek's individual play sparked the best Kent line 

in Golden Flash gridiron history. The forward wall, 
led by such stalwarts as Pat Del\'ecchio, Lou Toth, 
Jack Britt, Harold Miller, Ralph Garmus, Dick 
Wolfe, Dwight FoUin, Dick Paskert, Frank Klein, 
George Kovalick, Jack Urchek, Bill Moritz and Roy 
Snyder, held eight opponents to a total of only 465 
yards gained by rushing — an average of less than 60 
yards per game. 

Thirty-one players were awarded letters at the 
end of the season, and it is an indication of "things to 
come" that 30 of these will be back for the 1947

looks bright for the Kent State University football

>y ^ HE appointment of Harry Adams as the Uni- 
versity's head basketball coach last May was a step 
forward along the path to revive Golden Flash sports. 

Adams, who came to Kent in 1941 following a 
brilliant athletic career as a star gridder and eager at 
Cuyahoga Falls high school and later at Muskingum 
College, augmented his playing career by the suc- 
cessful handling of Uhrichsville high school sports. 
During his four-year tenure there, he served as ath- 
letic director. 

Adams joined the athletic staff of the University 
as assistant football and basketball coach. His career 
with the Golden Flashes was then interruped by a 
three-vear hitch in the Navy. 

Admirably suited to head Kent court fortunes, 
Adams has had more than six years of basketball 
coaching experience.

tx/HILE the Golden Flash faithful gloated over 
a highly successful football season, they cast an ap- 
prehensive eye at the coming basketball campaign. 
Countless big-name high school stars had been at- 
tracted to Kent. Over 150 hopefuls answered Coach 
Harry Adams' first Fall practice call. 

The 1946-1947 cage wars began amid reams of 
publicity which indicated that the team was poten- 
tially strong but lacked experience as a unit. Adams' 
charges opened the season with an impressive 69-42 
conquest of the "Old Men" or University alumni 
team. Newcomer Dale Haverstock flipped in 18 
points to pace the victors. 

Enthusiasm about the team cooled like the weather 

on December 3 when the Flash courtmen journeyed 
to Bowling Green and took a 63-47 pasting from the 
nationally prominent Bee-Gees. Although defeated, 
the cagers provided fans at the tilt with a brilliant 
individual display in the person of freshman center 
Fred Klaisner who burned the nets for 25 markers 
and one man honors for the evening. 

A courageous second half uphill battle at \\'ooster 
gave the Adamsmen a 53-48 triumph and a season 
record at that point of two for three. Only five men 
broke into the scoring column for the Flashes in this 
contest. Four of them, Haverstock, Klaisner, AMl- 
son, and Sudeck garnered eleven counters each while 
Finn added ten.

\, c^ HOAVING what was perhaps the best 
form thus far, the Flashes trounced Case 50-23 
at the Cleveland Arena. Veteran forward 
Harry Wilson netted 15 points to lead the 
winners. Significant feature of the fray was 
the Flashes' air-tight defense which limited 
the Scientists to nine fielders and five free 

Back in front of the home crowd, the cagers 
won a listless 42-36 victory over Allegheny 
College. Leroy Thompson finally got in 
stride after recovering from a leg injury to 
lead Adams' proteges with 1 1 tallies for the 
third straight win of the season.

HE FLASH quintet played host to 
oUege Dec. 28, and lost 54-48. Klaisner 
scored 10 points to again lead the home team, but that 
was not enough to offset the twin barrage of Don 
Newkirk and Elkin Isaac, who meshed 15 each for 
the winners. 

Coach Adams' boys started the New Year off 
\^•rong by losing to Youngsto\\'n College Jan. i. They 

were defeated 66-57 ^y ^ team which was tough on 
its home floor. 

Back in the familiar surroundings of Wills Gym 
two nights later, the Golden Flashes scored a 65-38 
win over the Crile Hospital team. Bill Sudeck paced 
the onslaught with 1 3 points, as 1 2 squad members 
contributed to the scoring. 

The Crile victory marked the seventh win of the 
season for the Golden Flashes, as they prepared to 
take on their traditional foe, the University of Akron. 

Stopping Fritz Nagy, Akron's Ail-American for- 
ward, was the assignment of guard Dale Haverstock. 
He succeeded admirably, holding Nagy to three field 
goals, but other departments of the Flashes' play bog- 
ged down, and Akron won the tilt at Goodyear gym

EEKING revenge for an earlier defeat, the 
Flashes met Youngstown College and squeezed out a 
50-49 decision over the invaders. Haverstock netted 
the game-winning goal \\ith exactly four seconds of 
plaving time remaining. 

It took a i6-point second-half bombardment by 
brilliant Bill Herman of Alt. Union to defeat the 
Kent basketeers in their next outing. Mount triumphed 
46-41, with Herman scoring :o of the points. 

Next on the season's program for the Flashes was 
Muskingum College, Coach Adams' alma mater. The 
Adamsmen traveled to New Concord to oppose the 
high-flying Muskies, who were at that time one of 
the leaders in the Ohio conference. 

KSU hoopsters played one of their best ball games 
of the year but suffered a 59-57 set-back. Klaisner 

and Thompson led the Flashes with 18 and 16 tallies 

On January 21, the Golden Flashes played host to 
the Yellow Jackets of Baldwin-Wallace College. The 
home team led 45-42 at the end of the third quarter 
but faltered badly in the stretch to lose, 61-50. Klais- 
ner registered 22 points to dominate KSU's offense. 
B-W defeated Akron a few nights later. 

On the road again, this time traveling to Crile hos- 
pital in Brecksville, Adams' proteges regained the win 
column \\ith a 55-46 conquest of the hospital five.

the Golden Flashes found themselves confronted with 
the formidable Zippers of the University of Akron.

outcome was the same, the Zips winning in a romp, 


The long-awaited Flash offensive display arrived 

in KSU's second encounter with hapless Case. In re- 
cording an 87-42 triumph. Coach Adams' charges 
came within one point of tvang the school scoring 
record for one game. 

Utilizing a fast break and a tight defense, the Flashes 
next gained sweet revenge for a previous Mount 
Union beating, overcoming a seven-point halftime 
deficit to win out 59-54. Guard Benson negotiated 
14 points in sparking the victory. 

Continuing their winning ways, the Flashes sent 
the Wooster Scots home with nothing to show but a 
61-53 loss for their effort in Kent. 

KSU's Flashes won their 13th game of the season, 
defeating John Carroll 52-46 in their last home ap- 
pearance. On the road at Ashland Coach Adams' 
cagers met disaster at the hands of a speedy and ag- 
gressive Ashland College quintet, losing 62-61. 

The courtnien from Kent came close to pulling a 
big upset over Bald\\in-\\"allace in the next game. 
Holding a one point lead over the Jackets midway in 
the final period, KSU faltered and Mas edged by the 
Cleveland team 53-51. 

In the season finale in Cleveland against John Car- 
roll, the University encountered a "red-hot" team and 
suffered a humiliating 64-23 setback. 

In their first full post-war year of basketball, the 
Golden Flashes finished with 1 3 wins and 1 1 losses.

Booster Club 

C/XPLODING with a bang heard 'round the 
campus, a University Booster Club came into 
existence in 1947 on the strength of a campaign 
which netted more than 1,000 charter members. 

Founded by a group of campus leaders to pro- 
mote University athletics and foster school spirit, 
the Booster Club was responsible for a special 
clieering section at varsity games. 

Officers elected to guide the Booster Club 
in its first year were: Mickey Dover, president; 
Roy Newsome, vice-president; Jessie West, sec- 
retary; and Bob White, treasurer.

' ^^'0 SQUARE strips of mar, enclosed in a cage- 
like affair, in the far end of the locker room has be- 
come known as "Begala Beach," and rightly so. 

Czar of the "Beach," Coach Joe Begala, has com- 
piled an amazing record in the i6 years that he has 
been at the helm. His ^\Testling teams have become 
feared throughout the nation. 

The "Begalamen" reached their greatest heights in 
the campaign of 1938, '39, and '40 when they were 
rated the fifth top team in the country. 

"Weepin' Joe," who captained Thor Olson's great 
Ohio U. teams in 1928 and '29, is still in top wrestling 
condition, and practically any night he may be found 
giving one of his boys a vigorous workout. 

Perhaps there is something to his philosophy of 
"we'll meet any team, anyplace, anytime, and re- 
gardless of win, lose or draw, we'll have fun doing it." 

His teams' record of 108 wins in 128 meets proves 
the success of his strategy.

They Fell Hard 

IG TIME wrestling returned to Wills Gym after 
a four-year layoff, and the "Begalamen" came back 
as rough and tough as ever. 

Some forty grapplers reported to Coach Joe Beg- 
ala's first practice session December i, and, by the 
time of the Frosh- Varsity meet, the squad had dwin- 
dled down to 30 men, most of whom had won letters 
in either college or high school. 

By the time of the first meet with Waynesburg 
College of Pennsylvania, the Flashes were a well- 
molded and experienced team, deep in every position 
except the heavyweight class. 

Ironically enough it was a heavyweight, Bob Lei- 
man, who scored a pin in the Waynesburg duel when 
the chips were down. With one match remaining and 
KSU five points behind, Leiman pinned his opponent 
to give the Flashes the needed counters for a deadlock. 
The 16-16 draw was the first time the "Begalamen" 
had been tied in 16 years. 

Using six new faces, the Staters shut out previously 
unbeaten Case, 30-0, in their next meet for the first 
victory of the season. 

Don Bentley, Ralph Wilson, Robert Gatts, Ed 
Alaro, Ken Leiman and Ray Bickler saw action for 
the first time against the Scientists.

In dropping the Redcats 31-3, the Staters piled up 
their highest score of the season. Jack Botts, 128 
pounder, and acting-Captain Joe Incorvaia, in the 145 
pound division, continued their winning ways by 
pinning their opponents. 

Faced with their stiffest assignment of the season, 
the Flashes defeated the powerful Syracuse team 19-9, 
in reaching their pre-war prominence as a mat power. 
Syracuse, previously unbeaten in three starts, had 
defeated Penn State and Cornell, both nationally 

Coach Begala used his first team sparingly in romp- 
ing to an easy 30-0 shutout over Findlay college. 
Performing before a large crowd in their home finale, 
the Staters swept every bout, three by pins, in notch- 
ing their fifth straight victory. Ike Leaver, Joe Incor- 
vaia and Ed Aiaro all won five pointers for the Blue 
and Gold. 

The wrestlers revenged an early season tie in drop- 
ping Waynesburg from the undefeated class, 19-11. 
An easy 26-6 decision over Findlay in a return en- 
gagement gave Coach Begala his third undefeated 
wrestling team, and the university its fifth undefeated 
athletic team.

Men's Intramurals 

Interest in men's intramural sports during the year 
jumped from the seven teams entered in summer 
Softball play to 5 1 teams playing in winter cage com- 

Softball honors during the first summer session 
went to Delta Phi Sigma, Kappa Sigma Chi, and 
Windham who tied for first place. Windham re- 
mained a power in the league by winning the Softball 
title for the second summer session. 

In the fall, Victor Aloore joined the HPE staff and 
became new intramural director. He has had to cope 
with many problems, such as weather and accommo- 
dating in the gym the large number of teams desiring 
to participate in the various programs. 

Three independent leagues and a fraternity league 
saw action during the football season. Kappa Sigma 
Chi clinched first place in the fraternity league while 
the Salemites won the independent title. 

Runnerups in the grid leagues were Delta Phi Sig- 
ma, Tappa Nu Keg, Elyria Pioneers and Fighting

in order. Paul Pieper won the Manchester horseshoe 
playoffs with Charles Dragga finishing second. 

Gamma Tau Delta roared ahead to capture the 
fraternity volley ball pinnacle with the Atomic Pills 
emerging as independent victors. Alpha Phi Beta, 
Kappa Sigma Chi and Delta Phi Sigma trailed the 
fraternity champs. The Tappa Nu Kegs took second 
place among the independent teams. 

Eight independent leagues and the fraternity circuit 
were battling on the basketball courts during Jan- 
uary, seeking the all-university cage championship. 

Leading the fraternity basketball league were Delta 
Phi Sigma and Kappa iMu Kappa \\'ith Kappa Sigma 
Chi hot on their heels. 

Among the independents, \\'indham. Residence, 
Night Hawks, O.M.S., Canterbury Club, and lilla 
Mae hoopsters boasted excellent records. 

Defending its lead in the I-M cup race was Delta 
Phi Sigma. This cup is awarded in June by the HPE 
department. A similar cup will go to the independent 
team gaining the most points in intramural competi-

x\n attempt to provide a sports activity to suit every 
co-ed's interest is made at the University. In addition 
to the physical education classes, in which women 
play tennis, golf, basketball, and other games, the 
Women's Atheltic Association sponsors several sports 
tournaments every quarter. 

Participation in intramural sports provides chances 
to win the WAA intramural cup, and sorority, dor- 
mitory and off-campus team competition becomes 
keen when the co-eds vie for tourney titles and tro- 

During the Fall Quarter, Theta Sigma Tau sorority 
soccer team won the 1946-47 tournament champion- 
ship and cup. Moulton hall whipped the Theta Sigs 
to become the volleyball tournament champion and 
carry away that trophy. 

The shiny bowling-ball participation trophy went 
to Beta Gamma sorority for having the greatest num- 
ber of girls out on the alleys in competition 

Individual bowling, badminton, tennis, table tennis, 
and archery tournament champions were a\\'arded 
sterling silver bracelets. Weekly meetings of the 
swimming and dance clubs found the girls splashing 
and learning the art of graceful movement.

their own steps. Betty Vey was manager of the group. 

Taking the advice given early in the year by Dr. 
A. O. DeW'eese, many women decided to "get out 
in the fresh air when they exercise instead of staying 
in the gymnasium." They discovered the thrills and 
chills of tobogganing down the snow-covered campus 
hills during the \Mnter Quarter. 

Physical education majors and minors in the Col- 
lege of Education gave their special attention to the 
AVomen's Athletic Association's annual Play Day in 
the Spring. Over 350 high school girls from north- 
eastern Ohio attended the affair eager for a day of 
fun. The HPE students, who plan to teach sports, 
instructed the young girls in relay races, dodgeball,

In This 


TUDENTS at Kent began to feci the national housing shortage in the Fall Quarter of 1945, which opened 
two months after the war ended. The first large influx of veterans combined with a sharp increase in non-veteran 
registration filled the town to capacity. 

Determined not to refuse any GI an education because of lack of a room, Kent State last year began 
measures to uncover every spare room in Kent, and to provide temporary housing from government surplus 

This year, the Aiaple Grove Community Project became predominantly an answer to the married veter- 
an's housing problem. Single men found temporary quarters in the barracks at Kent and \^'lndham. 

The Bed-for-a-Vet campaign, conducted by students, enjoyed notable success. Pictured above are Bob 
Wentz and Jim Bullock in one of the publicity highlights of the drive.

HAT became even more pressing to Americans during the past year \\'as the bitter fight over the war- 
time Office of Price Administration. The above picture shows a demonstration by a group in Chicago demand- 
ing that OPA be retained. This fierce controversy drew drastic comment from many sides and spHt party Hues 
wide open. Some claimed the bureau hindered normal peacetime production, but the administration deemed it 
necessary to stabilize jittery economy. 

A Congress led by Taft of Ohio and Wherry of Nebraska passed a bill crippling OPA's sweeping war po^^•- 
crs. Urged on by overwhelming public support, the President vetoed the bill. Congress then passed another, 
which he signed. 

President Truman declared the end of the Second ^^'()rld \\'ar the first of this year. This act automatically 
cancelled the once-powerful bureau and other emergency measures granted the wartime president, Franklin D.

<^OON to take their places in the world, members 
of the Senior class were saddened by the thought of 
leaving the portals of Kent State University and bid- 
ding adieu to friends and teachers. As freshmen this 
class was the smallest in the history of the Univer- 
sity, but after struggling through the war years, they 
were joined by many returning men and women 
whose college life had been temporarily interrupted. 
When the time came for departure, the seniors had 
developed into an outstanding group of which the 
University could be proud. 

Officers of the class for this final year were: Hank 
Johnston, president; Barbara McDowell, vice-presi- 
dent; Agnes Sawyer, secretary; and Yvonne Lewand- 
owski, treasurer.

HE first peacetime graduation in five years was the fortune of 
the 1946 diploma class. With many old acquaintances back in time 
for graduation, the class of 1946 felt the jubilant air of a new campus 

Dr. T. V. Smith, professor of philosophy at the University of 
Chicago, spoke on "Education and International Relations" at the 
commencement exercises held in June. 

The seniors who marched into the auditorium to receive degrees 
numbered 113. Graduating from the College of Education were 
eightv-three future teachers. Next in number was the College of 
Liberal Arts with thirty-two seniors. 

The seniors start up the steps to the Administration build- 
in£i on the last leu of their journev through Kent. 

The grand finale has finally arrived. With diploma in 
hand, they are now ready to step into the world.

graduation exercises. 

Graduation incurs another line but this is the last one at 





NE of the three necessities of life — food — was a 
difficult item to obtain at Kent this year. The trouble 
was not so much a shortage of food but was due to 
the fact that the local restaurants could not get the 
help to serve it. The large influx of students over- 
loaded the facilities of the more popular eating places. 
And as prices climbed skyward, many students be- 
gan preparing their own lunches. 

In October a new cafeteria was opened to the 
public in Lowrv Hall and helped to alleviate the sit- 
uation. Construction of a new cafeteria was started 
early in the \\'inter Quarter. 

To satisfy the "chow hounds" of Kent, box lunches 
were sold near the campus. The cro\\ded conditions 
and long lines made this way of getting a quick lunch 
very popular, especially during nice weather. 

For commuters who were wise and broucrht their 
own lunches, an eating place was established in the 
lower part of Aloulton Hall. 



Robert Casey, President 

SIDE from time spent in the Captain Brady over 
"cokes", the Class of '48 devoted itself to activity 
in all phases of university life. The class was led by 
Bob Casey, president; Bob Durivage, vice-president; 
Jean Goncher, secretary; and Jim Bullock, treasurer. 

Student Council members were Dona Mae Burk- 
hardt, Jean Goncher, and Tillie Davis. Blue Key, 
national service honorary, pledged Robert Heigh- 
berger, Randy Newhouse, Bob Smiley, Paul Yam- 
okoski, and Bill Sullivan, while Cardinal Key, its 
sister organization, pledged Tillie Davis, Joy Brand, 
Colleen Brand, Jeanne Cook, Felice Faust, Jacqueline 
Shafer, Mary Sisler, and Phoebe Steiner. 

No Time For Classes, the traditional musical com- 
edy, was under the capable direction of co-producers 
Jim Bullock and Bob White. Audrie Fomshell re- 
ceived a scholarship to attend Alexico City College 
under the exchange plan originated by Ohio State. 
Mickey Dover promoted a University Booster Club 
and served as its first president. 

Named to "Who's Who in American Colleges and 
Universities" were Dona Mae Burkhardt, Jeanne

HE largest Freshman Class in the history of Kent 
State University invaded the campus last Fall. The 
2500 eager newcomers found the University ready to 
serve them in every way, but the staggering enroll- 
ment presented many grave problems to the adminis- 
tration. Long lines were inevitable the first week, as 
the Frosh \\'ere advised and registered. Swift revision 
of class schedules was necessary to accommodate 

Class officers were Phil Dempsey, president; Joan 
Huffman, vice-president; Beverly Lewis, secretary; 
and John King, treasurer. Bill Shuttleworth, Phyllis 
Ferguson, Alarj Parmalee and Bob Chambers were 
named to Student Council in the December elections. 

The University's sports program was moulded 
around the first-vear students. The all-Freshman 
swimming team was paced by Don Wilson, 100 and 
220-yd. dash man. Fred Klaisner broke the University 
scoring record \vWi\e leading a basketball squad which 
was composed of eleven Freshmen out of eighteen 
members. Star of the successful grid machine was

-ARKING the twelfth year of its existence at 
Kent State this year, the Department of Traffic reg- 
ulations maintained an enviable record in handling 
about 1600 cars a day. 

Dale Rowe, traffic director, assisted by traffic of- 
ficers Ed Bates and Jack Britt, found that there is 
still a touch of the pre-war jalopy on campus. Such 
cars as the Durant, Marquette, Hupmobile and the 
Essex were listed among the registered cars. 

After completing their most recent set of statistical 
data, traffic department officers discovered the fol- 
lowing: Eighty-two per cent of all registered drivers 
receive no warning tickets; men drivers were less de- 
linquent parkers than women; there are twelve men 
drivers to one woman driver. 

Duties of traffic department members include not 
only placing tickets on offending cars or cautioning 
drivers to slow do^\•n, but also a variety of corres- 
pondence, publicity, statistical and sleuthing work.

NNOUNCEA4EXT of plans for a Student Center in accordance ^\•ith Kent State's post-\\'ar growth were 
made this year. The spacious building pictured above will be located behind the Heating Plant and close to 
Englenian Hall. Only the approval of the state legislature at Columbus is needed before construction can begin. 

The three-storv structure will house the University Book Store, locker rooms and meeting rooms for cam- 
pus organizations. Plenty of lounges and recreation spa^e will be provided. Plans to include a student theater 
and a diningroom have been made. A coke bar and lunchroom, equipped to serve light meals, will be located 
in the Center. 

The plan of the administration in building the Student Center is to give students a "college hangout" on 
campus, where everv' facility for recreation will be made available. In future years, this building will be a center, 
in mf)re than name, of Kent State activities.

Inter-Fraternity Council 

^/£^IGHING questions important in the fu- 
"tureof Kent State's seven fraternities is the Inter- 
Fraternitv Council, headed this year by Roy Apple 
as president, Charles Piper vice-president, George 
Hoy, secretary and Clarence Cole, treasurer. 

Foremost problem before the Council during the 
past year has been the one of nationalization of fra- 
ternities. University President George A. Bowman 
states that pemiission to "go national" may be given 
fraternities after the end of this year. 

The University's seventh fraternity. Alpha Epsilon, 
was accepted by the Council early this year, and was 
formally organized immediately afterward. 

Inter-Fratemitv Council decided this year to re- 
quire a one-dollar fee from each new Greek pledge, 
to be used toward an Inter-Fraternity House. It was 
also decided to pemiit non-fraternitv men to live in 
fraternity houses temporarily because of the acute 
room shortage. 

The organization is composed of two members of 
each fraternity on campus — the group's president and 
another member, appointed by him.

O BECOME a local social sorority, Sigma 
Sigma Sigma dropped its national educational affilia- 
tion this year and became Sigma Delta Sigma. It iiad 
been the oldest national sorority on campus. 

The Sigma Delts, or Tri-Sigs, as they had been 
known, carried off all principal honors on Campus 
Night, winning both the parade and song-fest. Dixie 
Grundy reigned as May Queen on that occasion, 
Marge Dornbusch Lombard was first attendant, and 
Ruth Hoehn was elected K-Girl. Miss Hoehn was 
also Homecoming Queen for 1946. 

Hope Greener was associate editor, later managing 
editor, of the Duchess; Pat Morgan was secretary of 
the journalism student body and an edition editor of 
the Stater, and Jean Goncher was vice-president of 
Women's League as well as a Stater staff member.

i (Jj ECOiVIING known as Theta Sigma Tau, the 

fomier Thera Sigma Upsilon sorority reverted to a 
local social organization by relinquishing its national 
education charter in January of this year. During 
the year, it was also able to purchase a sorority house 
at 528 South Water Street. 

At the close of the very active rush season this year, 
the Theta Sigs were found to lead all Kent State soro- 
rities with the largest number of new pledges. 

Theta Sigma Tau proved to be very successful in 
inter-sorority competition by winning the soccer 
trophy and claiming second place in the Row Boat 
Regatta, Pork Barrel, Campus Night parade, scholar- 
ship and volleyball. 

The group boasted several individual awards as 
well. Alice Jean Watson was tennis champion; the 
leading role in "No Time For Classes" was played by

Omega; Edith Galloway was included in "Who's 
Who in American Colleges and Universities"; Lois 

Allyn was chosen for the Queen's Court at the Kappa 
Sigma Chi Sweetheart Dance; Velma Scott was at- 
tendant to the May Queen; and Aliss Galloway was

Iota, national businesswomen's honorary, and Betty 
Hoy was accepted into Phi Sigma Xi, science honor- 

On the social side, the Theta Sigs held two formal 
dances, a barge party, a mothers' party, and several 
sorority-fraternity parties.

Cy RGANIZED to consider the many problems 
facing the returned GI on campus and to promote his 
welfare and betterment through a college education, 
the University X^eterans Association, better known as 
the K-X^ets, is a local, unaffiliated group. 

Formed in September, 1944, by a small group of 
veterans, the Association now numbers almost 500 
members. It holds an important position in campus 
politics, with the recent migration of ex-GIs to the 
University, and sponsored the successful Wednesday 
night social dancing, introducing live music in the 
Winter Quarter. 

Bob Duncan was president this year, with Bob 
White vice-president, Charles Noble, secretary, and

A survey conducted by the Independents on the 
question, "Do you think a daily newspaper is impera-

ECAUSE OF the war, the Kent State branch of 
the international Young Men's Christian Association 
was inactive for several years. Reactivation, although 
it began in 1945 with the influx of veterans to the 
campus, was completed during the last year. A 
membership drive last Fall gained the organization 
many new members. 

Sometimes meeting jointly with its sister group, the 
Young AVomen's Christian Association, the YMCA 
shared many of its activities with the YWCA. The 
group also participated in intramural athletics. 

Parties and picnics were held regularly in line with 
the organization's purpose — the providing of Christian 
fellowship and recreation.

To promote closer cooperation between the parent 
group and individual city and council alumni clubs, 
nine active Association members were chosen to form 
a special district council, responsible for this year's 
successful membership campaign. 


A'lajor project of the Association is publication of 
a bi-monthly bulletin of University and Alumni news 
which keeps graduates informed of campus events and 
activities of former classmates.

ENT STATtyS seventh fraternity was organized 
in the Fall Quarter as the result of a loose plan w hich 
originated among a handful of veterans who met cas- 
ually on campus and in the Bradv during the Summer. 

By the beginning of the Fall Quarter, twenty-four 
men had joined the group. They applied to Inter- 
Fraternity Council for recognition, and were de- 
clared a local social fraternity late in the quarter. 

Dr. William G. iVIeinke and Assistant Professor 
Bernard Mikofsky accepted invitations to act as fac- 
ulty advisors, and officers were chosen. Philip Brus- 
tein has been president, Alfred Rubin recording sec- 
retary, A\'olfgang Ernst Translateur corresponding 
secretary, and Edward Weissfeld treasurer. 

First step in Alpha Epsilon's plan for tlie future 
is the purchase of a fraternity house. 


The Chestnut 


FTER lectures are prepared and examination papers 
graded, members of the faculty often turn to private research 
projects which have brought praise of the community and 
national recognition in technical and professional journals. 

As a member of the Portage County Youth Commission, 
Dr. Marion Van Campen, head of the Department of Ele- 
mentary Education, planned and directed a conference on 
teen-age problems for high school students. Completing her 
ninth year on the KSU faculty, Dr. Van Campen also aided 
recent University graduates in the teaching field through a 
series of special meetings to solve their particular problems. 

Outstanding in the field of library science is John B. 
Nicholson, Jr., Kent State librarian, who has made detailed 
studies on the use of microfilm in libraries, and similar con- 
structive topics. In an effort to acquaint the faculty with this 
year's reorganized staff and circulation methods at Rockwell 
Library, an invitational reception and lecture by a nationally- 
famous librarian were sponsored. 

Dewey F. Barich returned last year from service in the 
Navy to devote his time to aiding and advising veterans dur- 
ing their college careers. He frequently spoke before area 
civic groups in an effort to clarify public misconceptions 
about work of veteran-students. Prof. Barich, head of the 
Department of Industrial Arts, also found time to practice 
and speak on his hobby of silversmithing, an art of which he 
has a practical experience and historical knowledge. 

Faced with the overwhelming job of enlarging his depart- 
ment to meet this year's sudden tripling enrollment was 
Chester E. Satterfield, head of the Department of English. 
With the majority of new students enrolled as freshmen, 
Prof. Satterfield devoted his time to finding able teachers 
and revising elementary courses to insure a thorough, prac- 
tical basis in English literature and grammar, designed to aid 
students in every-day experience. 

Interpretation and arrangement of early musical scores 
have occupied the attention of Caro AI. Carapetyan, associate 
professor of music and director of the A Cappella and Ma- 
drigal Choirs. Many of these sixteenth century compositions 
have been given premiere performances in the United States 
this year by the eighty-voice choir Prof. Carapetyan has 
trained. The group sang both ancient and modem music in 
concert and on radio broadcasts. 

Burr Plaudits 

C^TUDENTS, too, are often found working successfullv 
in their chosen fields after school hours, while still enrolled 
at the Universitv. T\'pical of these are fiv'e:

l\ ENT STATE University's traditional produc- 
tion "No Time For Classes" hit the boards in March, 
this time with Jim Bullock and Bob White co-pro- 
ducing the successful all-student musical comedy. 

Leads were played by Ed Halas, Shirley iVIarks, 
Marion Lemponen and Jack Bernhardt. Bob Mc- 
Donald, Eileen McGinlev, Bob Stevenson, Bob Smiley 
and Janet Gillespie appeared in the show for the sec- 
ond year.

One of the first veterans to enroll here under the 
GI bill of rights, and one of the founders of the Uni- 
versity V^eterans Association, "Fletch" was a swing- 
band drummer, appearing with several combinations 
in Akron and Canton before the war. He has con- 
tinued his band activities despite the loss of his right 
arm in the African campaign. 

"Fletch" is 31, single, and a major in personnel 
management in the college of business administration. 

He was one of the first men to pledge Phi Beta Phi 
fraternity after its post-war reorganization and is 
presently active in the group. 

WLVIlMING champion Bernice Looney of War- 
ren combines a smooth personality which gained her 
the "iMost Popular" title ^\•ith a smooth swimming

AN UNUSUAL blue and white color scheme 
and a "Top of the World" decoration motif provided 
the backdrop for this year's Top Hop, held in Wills 
Gym February 7. Bob Chester and his nationally 
known orchestra provided the music. 

iVIarcye Huston Armington, elected iVIiss Kent 
State the day before the dance, became the first mar- 
ried coed to hold the title. She was presented at the 
dance and escorted to her throne by a court of nine 


attendants who represented every sorority and dor- 
mitory on campus. 

An estimated 800 couples in semi-fonnal attire 
danced from 9 p.m. to i a.m. Alany of these were 
alumni, returning to their alma mater for the big night. 

Agnes Sawyer and Grayce Mays were in charge of 
arrangements for the dance. Angeline Zima, Jack 
Loney, Dick Pope and Jean Faldessy of the Art Club 
created the striking decoration scheme. 


UEEN OF the first post-\\'ar Pigskin Prom, Miss 
Nancy Heikes, 1 8, of Rittman, Ohio was a freshman 
in the College of Business Administration. She was 
nominated by varsity halfback Robert Beachy and 
was selected from a field of five candidates by the 
Cjoldcn Flashes. 

The brown-eyed brunette was presented at the 
Pigskin Prom, the annual dance \\'hich honors mem- 
bers of Kent State's football squad. Miss Heikes was 
escorted to the throne during intennission through a 
cordon of Lowrv Hall girls, and presented with bou- 
quets of \\'hite and yellow chrysanthemums by the 
Golden Flashes and her sorority. 

Music for the dance, which was held in Wills Gym- 
nasium on December 7, \\'as bv Patsy Pace's Orches-

time, has since become an active member of that

'EMBERS OF the University Tlieatre and their 
friends danced before a background of kleig lights and 
stage props at their traditional formal dance, held 
February 22 in Moulton Hall iMusic Room. 

Six pledges of Alpha Psi Omega, national dramatics 
honorary, arranged the novel decorations and were 
presented at the affair. They were Jim Bullock, Bob 
Smiley, Mrs. Dorothy \Volfe Luck, Nick Bozeka,

C7T GNES HART was named Chestnut Burr 
Queen of 1947 when a telegram from Bob 
Hope, who judged the field of sixty-eight en- 
tries, was opened by Editor Al Geitgey at the 
yearbook's Valentine dance held February 15. 

Decorations in Wills Gym for the affair 
followed the traditional Valentine pattern. 

Johnny Lemon and his orchestra played as 
300 couples filled the dance floor. 


(Burt ^^een Candidates 

First formal of the j^ear was the Newman Club dance, sponsored by the campus Catholic students' organization. 

Campus IjormaU 

Our photographer was dating a Moulton girl, so we got this shot of the annual Moulton Hall formal. 




OOTHS representing t\\ent\'-four campus or- 
ganizations filled Wills Gym on the night of February 
14, when the Penny Carnival, a complete success again 
this year, was held. 

More than S500 was realized from the affair, of 
which Charles Dragga was chairman. The funds will 
he used to aid plans for European college students to 
study here. 

Kappa Sigma Chi fraternity and Pi Kappa Sigma 
sororitv took top honors with their photograph and 
fortune-telling concessions. Other booths featured 
such entertainment as Valentine telegrams, games of 
chance, duck ringing and throwing baseballs at a 
human target. 

Dclts Jack James and Matt Bradley cross the finish line, victorious. 

((_ HIRTY oarsmen representing all Greeks and 
some independent groups ro\\'ed down the Cuyahoga 
River from Standing Rock to the Main Street Bridge 
on a sunny May afternoon last year, for the first 
Row Boat Regatta since the war. 

The Kent Stater reactivated the traditional event, 
in which Alpha Omega sorority and Delta Phi Sigma 
fraternity won top honors. A feature of the Regatta 
was the "dark horse" entry of Stan Mine and Bob 
W'entz, Stater gossip columnist, daring an old bathtub. 
The carefree pair won a tremendous ovation from the 
onlookers, but, according to observers, seem not to 
have figured in the finish. 


N MAY Campus Night festivities reached their 
pre-war standard M'ith the traditional painting of the 
K, parade, and songfest. 

Sigma Delta Sigma sorority carried off all prin- 
cipal honors. Dixie Grundy, a Sigma Delt, was se- 
lected May Queen, and Marge Dornbusch was one of 
her attendants. Ruth Hoehn was chosen K-girl by 
Kappa Mu Kappa fraternity. The sorority won top 
honors for its float in the Campus Night parade, and 
its singing of "Stairway to the Stars" was good for 
the song-fest award.

"That MOLLOY MADE covers have been 
used on so many of the nation's leading an- 
nuals over a long period of time is testi- 
mony to the fact that they really do repre- 
sent more value. 

The Chestnut Burr, like many other lead- 
ing annuals, started using MOLLOY 
MADE covers "away back when" and the 
Molloy trademark on the cover of this 
1947 issue of the Chestnut Burr is the 
best evidence of an eminently satisfactory 
standard of quality and service throughout 
the years."
